Bobby Z (2006) R - 3½ Stars

A guy in prison for life, needs to pretend he's a dead guy to make a deal and get out of jail. This is a pretty good movie. He's going to be used as a trade to the bad guys and he needs to pull it off completely in order to keep himself alive.

Tim Kearney (Paul Walker) is an ex Marine who's convicted to life in prison. He strikes a deal with DEA agent Gruzsa (Laurence Fishburne) to take on the role of a drug lord Bobby Z. A hostage, the DEA wants, will be traded for him. But the cops haven't told him the whole story.

Now can he convince Bobby Z's ex-girlfriend Elizabeth (Olivia Wilde) and son that he is who he says he is? When the drug dealers show up to settle old debts, the shooting begins and Bobby finds himself in the battle of his life.
